Holidays for the Pros 2017 Coptool Gift Guide

Holiday for the pros 2017

Every holiday season it seems like the big boxes put serious pressure on all the name brand Power Tool guys to make the cheapest possible cordless tool kits and accessory bundles to hit their price points. They’ll pack them with older SKUs or lower amp batteries or throw in stuff that doesn’t always make sense all in an effort to show a “better deal” often targeting consumers that might not know the difference. We thought we’d take a different approach to find deals that make sense for PROFESSIONALS who know their stuff, to find the best deals on the latest and greatest stuff at all price levels. Use Coupon Code = GIFTGUIDE at Ohio Power Tool to receive Free Shipping on any of these specific items!! (more…)

Ohio Power Tool Pits Bosch Against Milwaukee with Free Tools

bosch vs. milwaukee

A lot of people seem to question which brand makes the best tools, and a lot of people have very different (and very strong) opinions about which tools they are going to keep on hand for whatever job they may see themselves doing. In being an authorized dealer for both Milwaukee and Bosch, Ohio Power Tool has found themselves on the forefront of the Red vs. Blue battle. Both companies make some very good tools, and both companies’ tools get both good and bad reviews once they get out in the field, so it is hard for me personally to not sit on the fence and let the big boys duke it out to see who out there is going to walk away the heavyweight champ in the electric tool world.

Contractor Supply Magazine Cover Story: Ohio Power Tool

Contractor Supply Magazine

Contractor Supply Magazine is a terrific trade publication for all the companies involved in the manufacturing and distribution of power tools, accessories and other supplies. While the magazine is very focused on the distributor’s side of industrial and construction products we find it is also a great resource for new product reviews, industry trends and other insight that might appeal to all sorts of other professionals. In the current January 2014 issue there is an in-depth interview that takes a look under the hood of Ohio Power Tool as a brick & mortar store as well as OhioPowerTool.com as an ecommerce destination and how the two complement one another.
